UK Anti-Doping, the national anti-doping organisation, has developed an online survey to ascertain opinion on the Prohibited List.
Since 2004, the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) has been responsible for the preparation and publication of the list of substances and methods that are prohibited in sport, known as the Prohibited List.
The aim of this survey is to collate views and opinions that will contribute to UK Anti-Doping’s 2012 draft Prohibited List submission to WADA, which will be completed later in the year. UK Anti-Doping hopes that survey responses will highlight key areas for debate and discussion.
UK Anti-Doping is seeking views from those involved in sport to gain a better understanding of their thoughts and opinions about the current list of prohibited substances and methods as well as suggestions for inclusion on future Prohibited Lists.
Academics, sport and science organisations, pharmacists, and those involved in sport are all encouraged to participate in the survey.
Michael Stow, UK Anti-Doping Head of Science and Medicine, said: “We want to gather as much feedback about the status of the Prohibited List as we can. The impact of the Prohibited List is far reaching and we really value the views of those that are affected by the Prohibited List and welcome your opinions.
“By participating in this survey, you can enhance the UK Anti-Doping 2012 draft Prohibited List submission, ensuring your voice is heard in the wider fight against doping in sport.”
